Detroit Lions defensive end Ronnell Lewis was arrested early Saturday in Norman, Okla., and he has been charged with three misdemeanor crimes.
ESPN reported that Lewis was arrested following an altercation in the entertainment district, and Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports police used a Taser to subdue Lewis after he punched a man in front of an officer.
Lewis has been charged with disturbing the peace, public intoxication and interfering with official procedure.
The Lions drafted Lewis in the fourth round last year out of Oklahoma.
